Default Spektrum DX6i loses its settings

I have a Spektrum DX6i has been changing settings for various models BY ITSELF! My main problem has been the timer, which resets from a DOWN setting to an UP setting. This is a serious problem, I need my timer to count down as I approach the battery time limit.

Today, I also noticed that for my Icon A5 model, it set itself to aircraft type as HELICOPTER.

At first I thought maybe I was going crazy, but this is a repeatable problem, and there are numerous posts about it on the internet. Does anyone know if it's possible to upgrade the firmware?

Thanks.

I used to have that timer issue,but found when i quit trying to reset (Not rest! Edited my spelling) it at the end of my flight it stopped doing that. Never had anything else change though.

H'mmm
I'd send it back to Horizon Hobby. Horizon has a reputation of doing repairs at no charge, even out of warranty units. And, as often as not, they also throw in the return shipping costs.

Just be certain to include with your transmitter, exact descriptions of the problems you've had.
